    Meet the development team

    Hi, I'm Steve Alexander. I work at Canonical as one of the technical leads for Ubuntu One. I'm interested in talking about what we're doing with Ubuntu One, and your experiences using around it.

    I'm stevea on Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/~stevea

    SteveA on irc (say "hi!" on #ubuntuone on Freenode)

    Right now, I'm at UDS in Barcelona. Find me and say "hi!" if you're here.

    I'll ask the others who are working on Ubuntu One to say something in this thread.

    -- Steve

    Re: Meet the development team

    Hi! I also work for Canonical and am a member of the Ubuntu One team doing front end web work (html, css, javascript), and more general design and visual direction.

    I'm jblount on Launchpad ( https://launchpad.net/~jblount ), Freenode ( #ubuntuone, #django, #bzr ) and I'm stickwithjosh on Twitter & Identi.ca ( http://twitter.com/stickwithjosh http://identi.ca/stickwithjosh )

    I'm quite excited about the work we are doing, particularly the thing we'll be doing to make everyone's experience with Ubuntu "out of the box" to be even more awesome (with and without our web service stuff).

    Hi guys.

    Thanks for the work to date, the service is looking good. I have plans to use the service for both individual use and within our business. I hope to provide feedback as we progress on what we as a business are using UbuntuOne for to help you tune the service

    Does this sync just the files or some ubuntu settings as well - like keyring , empathy/pidgin accounts etc...

    I know there can be a workaround like how I symlink some preference/conf files in dropbox but it would be great if ubuntuone supports sync of some user conf files out of the box.

    Hey. I'm Stuart Langridge, and I'm part of the Ubuntu One development team too. I spend all my time being excited about the cool stuff we're doing, which makes me sound sad, but there it is

    I'm really interested in hearing what people are planning on doing with Ubuntu One, since I do the API side of the project!

    I'm sil on Twitter and Identi.ca, and aquarius on Freenode; http://www.kryogenix.org/contact for all the gory details.

    Well then, to answer my own question just in case it's of interest to anyone else:

    There are 38 direct members of the "Ubuntu One hackers" team, and 42 people are members in total, directly and indirectly through other team memberships.

    this is probably planed. it's a sync service so configuration syncing is only natural.

    Question Re: Meet the development team

    Sorry about an inconvenience, but UbuntuOne is getting so much time to answer. I know there're a lot of (friend's) reservations / subscriptions pending. How much time do we have to wait? It's just curiosity.

    Thanks in advance.
